Genre and Auteur Theory

There is the Genre theory and the Auteur Theory.

Genre theory;

  • have generic similarities
  • the texts are determined by historical, social and political contexts.
  • the texts emerge as commercial products from an industry.
Auteur theory;
  • have individual stylistic features
  • texts have artistic creativity
  • the text is viewed as part of an artistic body of work
An example of an Auteur is Spike Jonze.
